Looks like it's set around books 2-4 which Wert has just been reviewing...

The Nilfgaardian armour doesn't look terrible in that shot & the music sounds on-point too.

This looks like someone stuck their hand into my brain and scooped out a series that they knew I'd love.

Corny fact - Henry Cavill is the son in the Movie version The Count of Monte Cristo.

Corny fact, thanks to my wife - When Myers wrote The Twilight series, Henry Cavill and his look in The Count, is whom she imagined her Edward.

The Witcher Netflix series will be "taking the fantasy out" and leaning more towards horror

I don't know who this Parry person is but they sound like the type who doesn't read fantasy.

Henry Cavill is doing the promotion circuit. I think I have the link below time stamped to a new clip sown during the interview, but you may have to adjust per your situation. Enjoy.

Thanks, I hate it. Still think Cavill is a disgrace as Geralt and Yennefer is not Yennefer.

So, apparently, this is not a fantasy series because they can't pull off army scenes, while showing a battle scene in the trailer. Got it.

My friends and I have this tradition of watching something so shit it becomes a comedy on New Year's eve for funsies. This series has been nominated for that by three out of four people now.

Henry William Cavill is AMAZING. I can't wait to watch. It looks like some if the best t.v since Dark, Sense8, and the OA yo hit Nflix.

Mixed feelings about this project.

I mean... most of it is pretty great. The show itself is probably going to be good. Henry Cavill and Freya Allan are brilliant casts. High production value is there, they're trying to stay close to the books, everything's there to make a great piece of fiction.

Then again, the same was true when Game of Thrones started out. Who's to say that this series won't devour the source material eventually and start spitting out god-forsakes abominations like Dorne and Winterfell in the later seasons? How will the subject evolve when saddled with a gigantic weight of raging hordes of fanpersons that just have to have a show to constantly watercooler-chat about, like with GoT or Sopranos or Lost or even the Expanse nowdays? Somehow the spirit of the original will be lost. It's the most successful part of polish culture abroad and I fear it's going to get completely assimilated and watered down over time.

I hope for the best but fear the worst. At the very least, it's probably going to be a good watch.
Except the scrotum armor.


Edit: Come to think of it, Freya Allan would actually make a brilliant cast for Triss, from how I imagined her back before the games were a thing. Tiny Triss with auburn hair.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

...well, at least they worked on that godawful wig. I stand by my opinion of Cavill's acting being about as deep and interesting as a shallow puddle of mud. A cliched one at that.

I do dig the music, though. It does actually sound Slavic, unlike everything else so far. But then again, going by the production team and cast, Sonya Belousova may be the only actual Slav involved.

Four episodes in I think and honestly the narrative is a bit of a mess. Fight choreography in episode 1 was spectacular but that was the only moment of greatness.

The Nilfgardian armor looks better than set photos indicates but still looks stupid and everyone else has spectacular armor so I kinda have to ask myself why
